Listen Ye! And rejoice with us, for this is our twenty-fifth 

Twenty-five years ago a slim volume appeared which sum- 
marized the achievements of a "little world," just established 
on the Fenway. This "little world" and its chronicler "just 
growed," like Topsy — suffering all the troubles and growing- 
pains of childhood, gradually entering adolescence, and finally 
reaching the imposing maturity of the quarter-century mark. 

As we reach this milestone, it is only fitting that we turn 
back to scan the years gone by, for only through contrast of 
the new and old can progress be fully realized and appreciated. 

We have gathered here, therefore, some of the old, and 
much of the new, in order to point with pride at the growth 
and changes in our "little world."

John Simmons 


" It is my will to found and endow an institution to be called the Simmons 
Female College for the purpose of teaching medicine, music, drawing, 
designing, telegraphy and other branches of art, science and industry best 
calculated to enable the scholars to acquire an independent livelihood." 

These words are the genesis of Simmons College. It has been said that an 
idea is as much of an endowment as money. John Simmons gave both, and the 
College of today with its twenty-nine years of service represents the present 
accomplishment of those endowments. John Simmons, born in the small rural, 
town of Little Compton, Rhode Island, with the meagre education that the 
common schools of such a community could furnish, but with the character 
and habits that the family training gave in those days, came to Boston in 1811 
at the age of sixteen to begin what was to be a busy, successful career as a 
business man. At first an employee in his brother's store, then the manager of 
his own small store which traded in men's clothing, and finally a leading 
manufacturer of ready-made clothes for men with a nation-wide business, 
together with an unusual shrewdness in real estate investments, he accumu- 
lated what was for those days a large fortune, and before he was sixty he had 
retired from active business. He had employed many girls in his factory and 
he had observed that beyond their ill-paid trade there were no opportunities 
for those with talent to achieve a self-supporting career in which their talents 
might be employed. Suitable opportunities for boys had been provided and 
this College was to be the supplemental institution for girls. Conditions and 
educational resources have been much changed in these sixty years, especially 
since our work began. But this College opened a pathway, and the many 
young women who entered its doors have reason to rise up and call its 
Founder blessed.

showed a surprising variety. A little more than an eighth are teaching in public schools and a little less 
than an eighth are teaching in colleges, normal schools, private schools, hospitals, or missionary schools 
or are supervising. About an eighth are engaged in food management as hospital dietitians, lunchroom, 
tearoom or club managers. This group includes a number of people who are in business for themselves. 
About a sixteenth are dealing with the adult public in the employ of business firms or welfare organiza- 
tions such as gas and electric companies, commercial food companies, health organizations or clothing 
shops. Another sixteenth are employed outside the home economics field as laboratory assistants, execu- 
tives, etc. This group includes six people who have earned their M.D. degrees. About half the group are 
married. Of these very few are working outside the home.

Remarks: Libraries are interpenetrating the whole life of their communities, and as they spread their net- 
work more widely to take in the farthest rural district and the crowded city ward, more and better 
librarians are needed. Their functions, too, are becoming more highly specialized, so special education in 
librarianship grows more important, hence the value of library schools of high quality. 
Simmons is now one of the largest, and hopes to be always in the forefront in quality as well.

Remarks: The Biology Department has grown in size, scope of work, and ideals along with the rest of the 
College. The quantity, variety, and character of instruction offered has improved continuously, as is 
indicated in successive catalogues. 

Our purpose is to be as useful as possible in contributing to the fundamental training in other programs; 
notably, household economics, social service, nursing and physical education. We are especially interested 
in developing scientifically trained persons for basic research, hospital and public-health laboratory 
technical positions, science teachers and other special lines of community and institutional services. 
That this has been well done is evidenced by the reputation we have gained as a depattment, and the 
wide-spread services which our graduates are rendering in leading institutions and laboratories of the

Publications: Thermal Expansion of Gases; Salinity of Sea Water; Labora-

Remarks: In the past twenty-five years nearly six thousand different 
students have taken courses in chemistry in this department. Of these 
about one hundred and fifty are making direct use in their professions 
of the chemistry which they studied in College, and some two or 
three hundred more are doing work in which a knowledge of chemistry is of indirect professional value to 
them. What of the remaining five thousand five hundred? What value have they received in exchange for 
their countless hours of study? Who can tell? They themselves, probably, can answer no better than any 
one else. Yet the College firmly believes that something worthwhile has been gained, — a point of view, a 
better understanding of the applied science of the world of today, a more intelligent appreciation of life. 
Education, indeed, has been aptly defined as being what is left after all that was taught has been forgotten.

Remarks: The chief ambition of the Economics Department is to cultivate in its students a critical and 
creative understanding of the economic life in which they are to take an active part as consumers and 
producers. With such understanding comes greater power to further economic progress regarded not as 
an end in itself, but as a stepping stone to social welfare.

a study of fundamental principles of teaching based on the psychology 
of learning — and a study of progressive methods now being used; the 
other phase of the work consists of practice teaching experience with 

classes in junior and senior high schools, and also in social settlements. This teaching experience is 

supplemented by periods of observation with teachers of experience.

and Opinion; College Book of Verse; Emerson; A Study of the Poet as Seer; College Book of Prose. 

Remarks: One definition of an educated person is "a man or woman who knows a good thing when he sees 
it." Teachers of English are perhaps primarily engaged in the effort to help students to appreciate quality, 
— a good book or a fine person; and to discriminate between shoddy reading, writing, and speaking, on 
the one hand, and cultivated expression, judgment, and taste, on the other. In a vocational college, such 
appreciation and discrimination are important both as culture and as skill, for to speak well, write well 
and read well are the marks not only of a person liberally educated but of a person professionally equipped 
for life.

the main course of the Department. American History, first given in 1904, has been given each year since. 
In 1919 the present course in Government was first given and in 19x7 the present course in Sociology. 
From time to time English History has been offered and also courses in Economic History and the History

Remarks: Youth desires a confession from her elders; she demands from 
them a clear stand. Based upon this stand she is willing and desirous 
of deciding for or against it. 

Since genuine physical education is a matter which concerns the 
whole of mankind, as well as the moral woman of free will, it will 
always remain true that many will never be drawn into its circle. 
Always there will be those who prefer the humdrum life to a con- 
scious realization or to an energetic tackling of the naturally inert self. 

To awaken, to encourage a happy, primitive urge for achievement, contest; to provide competition as an 
apprenticeship; to open the gates of self-confinement through gymnastics, sports or dances; to lead to an 
understanding of the value of vigorous, unfailing health is the platform upon which stands the Department 
of Physical Training.

Remarks: Psychology and Ethics have found a place in the curriculum of Simmons College since the begin- 
ning of instruction. Using senior subjects, a few years elapsed before the first seniors came into the first 
class. Since that time with emphasis first upon Ethics and later upon Psychology, the work has progressed 
uninterruptedly under teachers, many of whom were then fresh from the Harvard Laboratory of Psychol- 
ogy. The list will attest to the standard of merit maintained in the successive appointments: Mrs. Ethel 
Puffer Howes, Ph.D., 1904-1906; author, Psychology of Beauty, 1905; Arthur Stone Dewing, Ph.D., 
1907-1914, Professor of Finance in Harvard University and authot of numerous works on finance; Mrs.

Remarks: Physics endeavors to discover and interpret the fundamental laws of the Universe, laws under 
which we must all live. In these laws we see a wise Guiding Hand; we come to the realization that there 
is "One God, one law, one element, and one far-off divine event, to which the whole creation moves." 
The true scientist is artisan and artist; poet and prophet. 

"Science and Art, compeers in glory, 
Boast each a haunt divine, 
My place is in God's laboratory, 
And in His garden mine."

Remarks: The public health nurse is one of the essential workers in any adequate programme for community 
health. She is the field agent upon whom depends to a large extent the successful carrying out of any plan 
for the promotion of health and the prevention of disease. In her work in the home, in the school, and in 
industry, she serves as a teacher of health to the individual, thus taking an active part in the education 
of the public, which leaders in the modern public health movement recognize as an activity of no less 
importance than the sanitation of the environment and the control of community infections.

Remarks: Simmons College was the first to offer a four-year programme 
in social service leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science. As the 
profession evolved the School changed its methods but certain basic 
principles have always governed it; — specialized training on a 
foundation of general case work and community understanding; the 
balancing of theory and practice; training in public as well as private 
service; education in prevention; and above all the idea of service. 

The School believes that scholarly attitudes are not incompatible with simplicity and common sense and 
that the test of the professional social worker is his ability to give himself in intelligent, skillful, and 
disinterested service to others.

Robert Swan Sturtevant, Professor of Landscape Archi- 
tecture and Director of the School of Landscape Architecture . 

A. B., Harvard University, 1911; M.L. A., 1916. 
Formerly: Instructor, Lowthorpe School of Landscape Architecture, 

1919-1930; Visiting Instructor in Design and Planting Design, 

Cambridge School of Landscape Architecture, 1915-1930; Secretary, 

American Iris Society, 1910-192.6; Editor, 1917-1930; Director of 

Lowthorpe School of Landscape Architecture, 192.8-1930. 
Remarks: For over two decades women have proved their ability as 

architects and landscape architects. To an extent, it is a luxury 

profession, and for the beginner, periods of business depression are 

very difficult. Aside from this, however, the profession permits 

part-time work from the home as an office, regular work in an 

established office, or a wholesome development of homes and their 

Dependent upon the tendency of the individual, she may specialize 

in garden consultation, in garden lectures, or become an all-round practitioner, handling engineering, 

village improvement, or the complete development of private estates. 

Although graduates of the Lowthorpe School which was established in 1901 have been successful even 
the work of the few graduates of the School at Simmons College is not without interest. One of the gradu- 
ates is in charge of a Service Bureau for a garden magazine; one conducts a new garden center at Cleveland, 
Ohio; while others are working regularly in the profession in Massachusetts, New York, and North 
Carolina. With such a beginning we may well visualize a future of the School at Simmons College the 
first of the womens' colleges to offer a course in Landscape Architecture, that will be widely and well 
known throughout the country.

David Blair McClosky, Director of the Glee Club. 

Remarks: Within the past five years, as director of the Glee Club, 
it has been my ambition to make of it an organization of young 
women who have a love for the best in music. This, I am assured, 
has been accomplished. It is the object of the Glee Club to gather 
from the college a group, not of trained voices, but of those people 
who like to sing. This year the club has been smaller than usual — a 
group of sixty members — but it has been a most enthusiastic crowd 
which has accomplished much. For next year, plans have been 
started for a concert which should be one of the high-lights in 
Boston music for the year. Therefore, it is my hope that the fall 
will show a large turnout of new members, both freshmen and upper

"M. A.," "Mag," "Snoots," "Snootie," "Margot" 

Mag acquired the name of "Snoots" once and it never left. Why, we can't remember for 
she is one of those friendly souls with an impish glint in her eyes that tells you she is not 
above a little mischief. She has always given her best to the college, and, as a consequence, 
has set an enviable mark therein.

When you are not feeling quite up to "par" or are a little bit down in the "dumps" just

With freedom from malice, we just have to mention Lillian's faculty for being late to 
class. This sweeping statement must be modified, though, because this last year at the

nonchalant manner of forwarding unusual ideas and disputable opinions as much as we 
admire the careless way that she appeared in class, late. This Lillian is a most interesting

Florence Jennie Aliber "Flo" 

Flo has the unusual quality of being an exceptionally good listener to other peoples' 
interests — something which few of us do well. Her skill as a secretary seems assured, since 
she is the one to whom all the other "Secretarials" flock when accounts, shorthand, or 
what-have-you go wrong. And she always has time to help.

Betty is one of those greatly over-driven secretarial people who manages to do enviable 
work herself and still have time to help others. The accounts room claims most of her tjme, 
but she is always ready to say "Yes, thank you" to a dance invitation, and never fails to 
live up to her reputation of being one of the most cheerful people we know.

Mr. Van Winkle.

Those of us who have had the opportunity of knowing Doris are indeed fortunate. 
Although she is always busily engaged in the physics lab or with her Math problems, she

Margaret Elizabeth Bakie 


Margaret's one of those quiet girls who doesn't distinguish herself by yelling the whole 
length of the corridor. Quiet, yes, but "still waters run deep." She made Academy too, 
which speaks for her serious-mindedness, as well as the fact that she was just naturally 
born bright. If Margaret doesn't make a name for herself in the Home Ec line we will be 
very much surprised.

If you ever need aid go to Dottie. She will help you out of any dilemma, from lending 
you her typewriter to finish your law notes, to getting you a last minute blind. And she 
does it in such a cheerful, happy way you would think she was the one getting the favor. 
Dot's the peppiest person in Brookline House, which perhaps accounts for the fact that 
all the last year's inmates flocked back again this year.

Frances Marie Barry 


If you have ever heard someone talking very enthusiastically about a recent book she 
has just read or upholding a certain view on this or that question, it was probably Fran. 
Her pleasing manner and variety of worthy interests make her most convincing and 
irresistible, all of which suggests a well-rounded and successful future.

Mary Lou has managed to give her work at Simmons variety for, although she graduates 
as a social worker, she started as a secretary and even attempted landscape architecture. 
The best of it is that she likes each school better than the last. Perhaps that explains one 
of her most delightful qualities — the ability to be cheerful, no matter what happens, and 
to cheer up others, too.

When it was noised through "78" that a Porto Rican was amongst us, what specula- 
tions! Did she speak English well, was she a flashing-eyed brunette? And when we finally 
saw and knew her? First, a combination of creamy complexion and auburn hair; next, the 
ability to drop casually from English to Spanish and back again; then, a genius for making 
and cementing friendships. These are a few of her features which have aroused admiration 
and respect from those far off freshman days to these when graduation is upon us.

Anne Myra Beckerman "Becky" 

It is a well-known fact that her quiet and congenial manner attracts strangers; that her 
friends praise her helpful and sunny disposition; that her capability will make her an 
asset to any business office. Could anyone ask to have nicer things said about her?

As the time-worn but ever-truthful song goes — Here's to Kay, she's the best, quite the 
best! To her classmates she is known as that sweet-faced girl, who is a member of the Pep, 
Vim, and Vigor gang of Brookline House, all of which must mean, of course, a pleasant 
disposition with a dash of vivacity. Enviable combination!

Why is it that Harriett never seems to lose the thrill of packing a suit case? At least she 
is sure to succumb to that exciting pleasure each week-end. Perhaps Beechie is anxious to 
get back to that tea room in Connecticut that we're all so anxious to visit this summer. 
We're sure there won't be another tea room anywhere serving nearly such delicious food, 
combined with such warm hospitality.

Betty is that "intriguing" little person with red hair who has been the bright spot in 
many a class, with her unique voice and questions. She has conducted committees in a 
most efficient, business-like way; she has a quiet appreciation of good books, and a love 
of high ideals; in the midst of her busy college life, she finds time to be interested in the 
Union and it may be seen that she has a good deal of that gift called feminine charm.

Virginia Annette Bird 

Although a small person, Virginia achieves real dignity with her yellow hair, genial

Industrious Beth — either worrying over Home Ec, Glee Club, or Dramatics. We have

"Midge, I've got to change my appointment for a sitting" . . . "Can I pay for Mic in

"Midge, do I have to get my picture taken?" Through it all, she has been unruffled, pleas- 
ant, and efficient — marvelous self-control, or else the girl has no feelings. (Somehow we 
doubt that last.) West House feels fortunate that this owner of an unfailing sense of humor 
has spent her last year in Simmons on campus.

Lou came to us only last year but she very quickly became one of us and a very peppy,

Perhaps this is the normal reaction after escaping the pranks of tour young brothers every 
day. She whizzes through "short" and "type" assignments with the speed of a demon, 
and lucky is the "doctor, lawyer, or Indian Chief" who secures Helen as his secretary,

One of the first things we notice about Grace is her hair — a lovely shade of red; Grace, 
however, has not the usual traits of "red heads." She is a capable worker, not only in her 
school work, but also in outside activities. For instance, under her expert guidance Ellen 
Richards Club has had an unusually active and successful year.

Ruth Margaret Dunphy 
Is there anyone who does not remember seeing Cookie and Dunphy ever since the first 
few days of Freshman year? Some may recall how they used to burst into penmanship

Selma Doris Einstein 


Dignity, sophisticated restraint, and wit are some of the composites that make up the 
friendly personality of Selma. A social asset to any college, her popularity, nevertheless, 
never interferes with her conscientiousness. She's the type that Simmons is proud to call 
"A perfect secretary."

Endy was such a quiet little mouse her first years here that we never suspected the

Miriam Babette Jacobs "Jakie," "Mim" 

Miriam came to Boston for cultural atmosphere, and she has grasped her opportunities, 
including "taking in" the American Legion Parades — official and private (the latter staged 
for her benefit in North Hall). When we remember her ability to entertain her friends with 
the jokes she collects in her wanderings, we cannot help wishing her success, whether it 
be as a drum major, or secretary to a young lawyer in the front rank.

What would S.A.A. be without Life Saving, and what would Life Saving be without

A confident smile, almost upset by a merry twinkle in her eyes, and a quiet dignity, 
proving only a disguise for an abundance of humorous fun, alone make a captivating

Johnny is one of the few who did not succumb to the bob, for she has a great shock of

Curly dark hair, and brown eyes that are almost as lively as her tongue; an enthusiasm

such as math and physics, to the more rambling type of subject where one guess is as good

Muriel is a quiet sort of girl, but she has an unshakable firmness that is apt to prove

Barbara is the girl who has kept Bellevue's telephone busy for the last two years. Five

Louise Horton Platts "Plattsie" 

Have you ever seen Plattsie laboring intensely over funny little curves and pot-hooks? 
She is absolutely convinced that shorthand requires many unnecessary hours of real 
torture. But fortunately, she is a sensible girl and believes that one shouldn't indulge in 
painful duties too frequently for first of all she likes a good time and that's probably why 
she's been such a popular house chairman.

Bertha Tatelman 



Yellow hair with a decided golden glint (we don't dare call it red). 

A zest for bridge (and can she pull in those tricks)!

This is i,i, and 3 added together, which equals — BERT!

Dependable in all that she undertakes. Always busy about something, be it school,

Generosity, courage, charm, sportsmanship, and ability! All combined in one person — 
Betty Thomson. 

Whatever may be your hobby, you will find in Betty a companion, for her interests 
are infinitely varied. Whether a stately hostess or a jolly camper, she plays the role to 
perfection. More power to her — Betty the all-round girl.

Marie Frances Toperzer "Re" 

We like her name but we like her better — and still she has us puzzled. She's the best 
natured girl, always willing to help a friend in need, but her keen sense of humor and 
ready smile are coupled with an unusual reserve, explained by that well-known phrase 
"still waters run deep." We like it, for she never bores us.

Geraldine Clarice Totman "Gerry" 

Gerry is that tall, good-looking blond, who walks with determination and force, and 
has the knack of sending any crowd into hysterics by her droll remarks. We shouldn't 
be surprised either if her charm and graciousness had something to do with the specials, 
telegrams, and letters that regularly clutter up North Hall .

Evelyn Florence Tufts 


Gentleness and firmness are pleasingly blended in Evelyn. Even her voice is a combina- 
tion of mildness and force. Tactful and scrupulously neat — always gracious, always 
poised, with a dignified reserve which prevails even when she is brimming with merriment, 
she has endeared herself to us.

Eleanore Ihmsen Van Sweringen, "Van," "Swear" 
"A little, pretty, witty, charming, dainty, darling she." It sounds like a lot, but Van 
is all that and more too. Those who know her well, realize the worth of the serious side 
of her nature, which shines out from those sparkling eyes. Van is a real friend, an enthu- 
siastic "advertiser"; in short, a welcome addition to any group.

Florence May Varley 

Those of us who know Florence are indeed fortunate, for she is one ol those rare persons 
who really is worthy of the name "friend." This clever girl (Academy, by the way) is 
the sort that when attempting to describe, you give up and say "One just can't do Florence 
justice." Lacking powers of description, we can only say — one mighty fine girl!

Sigrid Irene Virta "Sig" 

Sig just seems to thrive on week-ends to New York and jaunts to Ogunquit. Problems 

such as menus never daunt her, and (with the help of the HARPER'S BAZAAR) she thinks 

up weird names for her mythical tea-rooms. Here's one girl who won't remain in a 

subordinate position long.

Sophie Waldman 


Amid the trials and tribulations that accompany a college career it is comforting to 
find a student like Sophie, who can pass through it all so serenely. Sophie seems quiet and 
prim, but we can remember a formal dance when she blossomed out in sophisticated black 
and gave us all a surprise — which is characteristic of her delight in the unexpected.

Esther Ann Watts 

'Ski," "Wattsie" 

Rather a conundrum is our Esther, but one that is well worth solving. Quick and

for her vivid interest in the better things in life.

Gin embodies a vast amount of nervous and physical energy. Whether she is dashing to

and which makes her a cheerful companion and friend.

Eleanor Mabelle Welsh 

Cool as the locality of the Welsh ancestral homestead in the far and sometimes frozen 
north is El'n'r's manner in rattling off the correct geography of our insides, or the godli 
ness of soap applied,

d where and how, etc. But the warmth of the Kentucky hills

Prixy's from West Virginia. That's where she gets her charming manner, but where 
did she get her pep? Is it a result of her numerous dances at Harvard Med? No, it's just 
Prixy, that's all. She has more "it" than any one else on campus and we can't blame any 
one for falling in love with her.

It is safe to wager that Carol is the most popular girl in the class of '31. She has been 
honored with the presidency of our class and is now the retiring president of Student

we think to be called charming is one of the highest compliments that can be paid a 
girl, outside of being President of Student Government.

Are you interested in detective stories? Dodie has all the latest; but if they fail to arouse

too. But she does them in such a friendly, happy way that we love and respect her all the

For such a little peanut, we wonder where Gen gets all her time and energy for making

Student government Association 

Every Simmons student is a member of Student Government Association. The 
Association elects twelve members to form Student Government Council, which meets 
weekly to consider student administrative routine. All members of the Association 
are encouraged to submit problems concerning activities of the various organizations 
and of the Association at large. Minutes of Council meetings are posted conspicuously 
on the Student Government Bulletin Board. 

This year Student Government Council has made particular progress in the efficient 
organization of the Association files. There has, furthermore, been an attempt to 
adapt the customs and rules of tradition to present needs.

Dormitory Council 

Dormitory Council is composed of the House Chairmen, the House Seniors, and 
the Vice-president of Student Government as chairman. It meets informally at 
irregular intervals as the need arises. This group is concerned with many practical 
problems occurring in one or another dormitory; quiet hours, laundry facilities, and 
conduct in general. Dormitory Council attempts to interpret the rules to the resident 
students and to encourage a feeling of respect for them. 

The social side of dormitory life is another great interest of Council. It sponsors 
an inter-class party every year at which a costume is the cause, and getting acquainted 
the result. Candlelight Dinners, another social function initiated by a past Dormitory 
Council, have brought faculty and students together and furthered a spirit of in- 
formality between them. It is significant that the popularity of these is ever growing.

Student government Conference Committee 

Through the agency of Conference Committee the faculty has a means of aiding 
the students in their policies of self-government. The Committee is composed of the 
Dean, three members of the faculty, elected at large, and four members from Student 

All business transacted by Student Council, Dormitory Council and Judicial Board 
is reviewed and approved by the Committee before it becomes final. It is directly 
through Conference Committee that cooperation and understanding is maintained 
between the faculty and the students.

Judicial Hoard 

Doris Gilliatt 
Elizabeth Kerr 

Judicial Board is the Judiciary body of Student Government. This body investigates 
and passes decisions on cases of violation of academic and dormitory rules, all offenders 
being given an opportunity to defend themselves. If a dormitory case, the recom- 
mendations of the Board are passed to the Conference Committee; if an academic case, 
to the Faculty Disciplinary Committee. The Board then awaits the final decision of 
these Committees. 

Judicial Board exists, not only for disciplinary reasons, but to give advice if it is 
desired. It also tries to prove, by enlarging and maintaining the students' responsi- 
bility, that they are worthy of Student Government.

President Grace DuMoulin 

Secretary-Treasurer Dorrance Chase 

The founding of the Ellen Richards Club in 19x0 was the result of a desire to 
stimulate an interest in science, and to promote good fellowship among the science 
students. Its membership is now open to juniors and seniors of the Science School, 
and sophomores are admitted during the last term of each year. Although the admission 
requirements make the organization small, it is steadily growing, and with its growth, 
the ideals and aims of the club are being realized more and more. 

In addition to the annual fall picnic and the birthday party in the spring, open 
meetings, teas, and initiation are held during the year. This year two of the speakers 
at our open meetings were Dr. Smiley of Harvard, and Dr. Ralph Wheeler, Massa- 
chusetts state epidemiologist, who added much to our scientific knowledge. 




Chairman, Genevieve Young 

"The world is so full of a number of things — " 

Forum brings to the students speakers who talk to them about a few of that 
"number of things" — politics or poetry, social problems or travel in far-away lands. 
It hopes that these glimpses may help the students to broaden their interests, and 
perhaps agree with Stevenson that ". . . we should all be as happy as kings." 

Forum is grateful to the members of the faculty who have talked so interestingly 
to us this year, as well as to the speakers from outside. 


Home Economics Club 

President Marion Crowther 

Vice-President Mabel Turner 

Secretary Elizabeth Bliss 

Treasurer Ruby Winslow 

Chairman of Food Sales Committee Catherine Leamy 

The Simmons Home Economics Club aims to acquaint the undergraduates with 
the business world and the various vocations open in the Home Economics field. This 
is accomplished throughout the year by having speakers at the meetings who relate 
their varied and interesting experiences. There also are trips to visit companies of 
interest. The Club is affiliated with the Massachusetts, New England, and American 
Home Economics Associations, and each year a member of the junior class, belonging 
to this club, is sent to the annual National Home Economics Convention. 

Juniors and seniors in the School of Household Economics automatically become 
members of the club. Money is raised for it by food sales in the dormitories and at 
Hall Table.

Treasurer Morris L. Friedberg 

Faculty Adviser Morris L. Friedberg 

Thirty years ago the first Menorah Society was founded at Harvard University, 
and this year marks the fourteenth birthday of our Simmons Menorah Society. It 
has evidently proved a necessary and helpful organization, for since then similar 
societies have sprung up in colleges all over the country, and they have been very 

The aim of this society is the study and advancement of Jewish ideals and culture; 
to stimulate a deeper and keener interest in things Jewish through the programs which 
are conducted for the benefit of its members. Menorah also aims to develop closer 
friendship and loyaltv among its members, and with this in mind it sponsors many 
purely social activities.

The Newman Club, a Catholic society, is one of the largest and most active clubs 
in the College. All Catholic students of Simmons are members of this organization. 
Newman Club is a member of the National Federation of College Catholic Clubs 
and is thus affiliated with all the college clubs throughout the country. 

The purpose of the Club is to unite the Catholic students of Simmons in religious, 
educational, and social activities. Frequent business and social meetings adequately 
carry out this purpose. It is the aim of the members, assisted by the Club Chaplain 
and officers, to follow in the footsteps of their most worthy and noble patron, Cardinal

The Poetry Club began meeting weekly in an informal way last year. Membership 
is restricted to those who are interested in creating verse and experimenting with 
patterns both old and new. Mr. de Mille has given the Club a great deal of friendly 
assistance and encouragement. 

Last year the Club had the honor of reading before the Boston Center of the Poetry 
Society of England, and again this year. Another high spot was the entertaining of 
the faculty at a tea. "Arrows", a slim, red volume of verse is its first publishing

Since its organization two years ago, the Debating Society has advanced to the 
ranks of a College Debating Society. The worth of such a society to further the art of 
Forensic has been appreciated by the majority of students and instructors, judging 
by the large attendance at the informal, as well as formal, debates. The number of 
members has grown rapidly, and the excellent material in the club promises a bright 
future for debating at Simmons.

Librarian Elizabeth Sampson 

Simmons Musical Association is maintained for the benefit of students interested 
in Music. It not only fulfills this purpose, but also offers to the student the opportu- 
nity of friendship with girls with similar interests. 

In keeping with its meritorious program of the past few years, two successful 
concerts have already been presented this year, at Jordan Hall and Trinity Church, 
and every one is looking forward to the joint concert with Brown University Glee 
Club, and to singing at Simmons Night at Pops. 

The Instrumental Organizations, in the form of a quintet and jazz orchestra, have 
also proved themselves most progressive this year by appearing publicly at Faculty 
Dinners and college teas. 




Unity Club 

President Frances Atwood 

Vice-President Edith Jane Church 

Secretary Althea Russell 

Treasurer T . Margaret Webber 

The Unity Club aims to bring together the girls of Simmons who have liberal 
religious views in order that they may become better acquainted through discussion 
and through social gatherings. This year our meetings have been held once a month, 
in the form of teas, with some especially interesting speakers as our guests. Our 
membership has been made up of Unitarians, Universalists, Congregationalists, 
Presbyterians, Baptists, Lutherans, and Episcopalians, so you see, denomination does 
not matter.

Simmons "Y" has aimed this year more than ever to have some activity of interest 
to each student. The usual Friday afternoon teas have been held at the Metropolitan 
Headquarters and have been varied by intercollegiate ones during Lent, and monthly 
ones, with special speakers, in the Lounge. Annual affairs were the Freshman picnic, 
the houseparties (this year at Cedar Hill and Woburn), "Y" conferences at Maqua, 
the intercollegiate conferences at Cedar Hill and Poland Springs, and the Faculty- 
Student baseball game. In the endeavor to carry out the aim in a fuller manner many 
activities have been sponsored, among them a special industrial group, aided by 
Mr. Freidberg; museum trips; religious discussion groups in the dormitories; and, for 
lighter diversion, theatre parties. 

"Y" has also been trying to make a full and creative life possible for others through 
Social Service Work in local agencies and a growing interest in our sister college, St. 
Christophers, in Madras, India.

Chairman of Activities Eleanor Ricker 

Stage Manager Madolon Hallock 

As is usual, the old "stand-bys" have nobly supported Dramatics this year, but 
we have had a wealth of new material which gives encouragement for greater growth 
in the years to come. We have been especially fortunate, too, in being able to stage 
our productions at Whitney Hall this year, thanks to the financial aid given by 
President Lefavour and members of the Corporation. 

Attendance at the plays has been better than ever before, and Dramatics is on a 
firm financial basis now. The plays have been exceptionally well staged, which is due 
in large part, to the improved facilities. 

The junior class won the prize in the competitive plays in March. There were so 
many who did a fine piece of acting that the judges preferred not to award individual 
acting honors to anyone.

The year 1930-193 1 has brought several changes in the Simmons News. One is 
that the paper is no longer subscribed to individually, but is distributed free to all 
students and faculty members. 

The other change is the coming of Per-Simmons, the literary supplement which 
contains writings gathered from various students and which corresponds to the 
undergraduate work formerly found in the Review. 

We feel that the News has grown up a great deal since it made its first timid, mimeo- 
graphed bow to the world in the fall of 1913, and yet the changes just made prove 
that there is a great deal of opportunity for further growth and expansion. Our 
ideal is that the News shall truly reflect the spirit that belongs to Simmons.

With the idea of expanding the publicity of Simmons, Press Board has increased 
its membership this year. Underclassmen have been taken on as assistants to train 
them to take up the work as the upper classmen leave it. Several home-tow»n papers 
have taken Simmons Correspondents, and the writing of news for these smaller 
papers also helps to prepare the reporters for larger Boston papers. 

A great increase in cooperation from the faculty has been felt this year, probably 
because of the influence brought to Press Board by Mr. Watkins, who, in the middle 
of the year, became publicity director for the college. 

Student Government has again financed clipping service, and Press Board Bulletin 
Board, with its many clippings, is a popular gathering place in the front corridor. 
Beside this, there is a scrap book, which is being kept in the Editors' Room, con- 
taining the clippings of the Boston papers which the Clipping Service so often

After the fashion of Briggs, who was always wondering about the thought habits 
of weird and wonderful creatures, we wondered what occupied the minds of the 
members of that strange group — Mic Board. Here's what they told us: 

A — The Artist, who insists that she thinks of angles and curves, even in sleep. 

B — The Business Manager, who mumbles that strange word "debit" over and over 
and over again. 

C — The Circulation Manager, who swears she is dizzy from hearing, "I forgot to 
order 'Mic', is it too late now?" 

D — The Diligent Advertising Manager, who thinks only of her wornout knees — 
in that condition from praying that people will advertise. 

E — The Editor, who screeches as you appear — you see, she's afraid you'll ask 
"How's 'Mic' coming along?" 

F — The Frantic Photograph Editor, who howls and foams at the mouth after 
long hours of pleading "Please give me some pictures for 'Mic' " 

G — The gigantic chorus which issued from their throats when they insisted that 
their traditional dive into Muddy River would take place in May, as in previous

Athlencs is one of the binding forces in our college life. It unites the girls in a spirit 
of fun, and makes for lasting friendships, formed on the hockev field, the basketball 
or tennis courts, in the swimming pool, fencing tournaments or archery contests. 
This year our wonderful new field added much to the success of hockey. The class of 
1934 was the winner of the class cup, and Helen Crawley won the individual cup. 
This was followed bv a successful basketball season which was brought to a close 
with the class of 1933 holding the cup. Eleanor Wight was the winner of the indi- 
vidual cup. For the third year, Dorrance Chase won the tennis singles. The entire 
season was brought to a successful close with track.

The Simmons Life Saving Corps was entered as a new form of athletics in 192.3. 
For seven years the course was held at the Big Tree Pool, Cambridge, but since the pool 
of tradition is no longer in use, the course has been given for the past two years in 
the new Y. W. C. A. pool in Boston. The pool is a great improvement, and the course 
has proved as popular in the new pool as in the old. Two courses are offered, under 
the direction of Captain Jack Wallace; one for those who wish to become Senior Life 
Savers, and one for those who are already Senior Life Savers, and wish to become 
Examiners, and teach Life Saving at summer camps.

The Weddings of 1931 

This custom has developed from a mock ceremony 
of comic character to a really beautiful and solemn 
pledging of friendship. Along in November, '31, as 
freshmen, received those real "society" formal in- 
vitations, and a real society event the wedding 
proved to be, with a full procession, and the brides- 
maids in the lovely period evening gowns of the day. 
And again in November of 192.9, we escorted the 
sweetest class in history to the altar. Many dis- 
tinguished guests were present — John Coolidge and 
his wife, Amelia Earhart, and a well-known mem- 
ber of the faculty being among them. 




Freshman Frolic 

Way back in 1905, the Class of 1908 dressed up in 
"kid clothes" and had a party at which they played 
games of their childhood. This party was referred 
to in the class history as the Frolic, and as such it 
has been passed down to the present day. Of late 
years it has taken place in the college "backyard" 
instead of on campus, but the essential features of 
lollipops, ice cream cones, tag, hide-and-go-seek, 
frilly dresses, pigtails and even overalls and panta- 
loons have remained the same. 




Track Day 

This is the culmination of the athletic year. For many years it has been character- 
ized by interclass competition for the best song and costume of the day, as well as 
by the track and field events. In fact, competition is the order of the day — remember 
the hot-dog eating contests? And the year '31 won the costume prize — all in blue and 
white with the good old owl leading on? 




Sophomore JMay T)ay 

The charming, if rather chilly custom, has come down to us from almost prehistoric 
times. As far back as 1914 the sophomores sang songs to their sister class at 6 a.m., 
following the serenade by the crowning of the President of the Senior Class Queen 
of the May, and by a dance around the Maypole. Then came breakfast — with straw- 
berry shortcake — served on the lawn. '31 varied the performance with a play to amuse 
King and Queen Marion, in which the three bears and a sleeping beauty were 





Sophomore Luncheon 

This is the day when '31 came of age, with the much talked-of rings 'n' everything 
— even to white owls sitting on blueberry ice cream rocks. Luncheon is another of our 
hoary customs, having been established by 191 1. The rings were not associated with it 
until about 1910, but always the luncheon has meant the consolidation of the class 
and the creation of a real class spirit. 




Freshman-Junior Ticnic 

Rain and ftesh paint, and a half-opened Nantasket — nothing could dampen our 
spirits that far off day in May. Wet beach, wet feet and wet skies, but still the thrill 
of the roller-coaster and the dizzy delights of the merry-go-round charmed us. With 
our big sisters we romped the day away, and when our junior year came we renewed 
our acquaintance with Nantasket under sunnier skies. 





Junior Trom 

From a dance in the banner- and pillow-decorated refectory back in 1907, Junior 
Promenade has held its own, and waxed mightily, through the lean war years of 
"expenseless" proms, to the dinner and dance from 7-1 at the Somerset, with seniors 
serenading in cap and gown. It will be many years before '31 forgets how grand 
(and inwardly how thrilled) it felt with its new long gowns and gloves and the 
flowers that "he" sent, to say nothing of the house party at the beach afterwards. 




Senior Housewarming 

Who would have dreamed that such wrecks — such wholly undesirable characters — 
could ever have been produced by our class? Rag, tag, and bobtail! Who ever heard of 
Senior dignity? Certainly none of these hoboes who revelled in North Hall base- 
ment, having one last wild fling before dull Senior-hood had settled down in 
irrevocable solemnity. 





The Old English Dinner 

The officers of Student Government are transformed in a twinkling into my lord 
and lady, with their high-born guests, and our work-a-day refectory into a manorial 
hall, fragrant with evergreen and dim and shadowy with candlelight. Formal dress, 
no forks, the blazing boar's head, "St. George and the Dragon", waits and tumbling 
jesters, all go to make this dinner a picturesque and memorable occasion.
